I love bags, you've seen a few of the ones I own in outfit posts here and there. Sometimes as soon as I'm done buying one, I find another that goes on my list that I wish to buy. Most of mine are vintage, but I do like to mix modern quirky ones in there as well. I blame my Mother, she always had lots of bags and changed them regularly while growing up, so I have developed the same taste for it. So I thought I would share some of my online favourites at the moment.
One type of bag I LOVE very much is novelty bags! If it's shaped like a cupcake, unicorn, heart, fluffy, has eyes or some other quirky feature, I am all over it like gravy!! I think it's the perfect way to add some quirkiness and fun to your outfit without going overboard.
If I'm with my children, I tend to look for something that has a great colour to it, versatility and easy to carry as well as not costing me the earth - because it might end up being used as something to toss around, get sticky hands all over it & everything else with children.
All of these bags below come from companies that ship worldwide, so if you like them, you can treat yourself. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do & wish you a happy day dolls.

This clutch just purely makes me smile, the monster face is precious and it's also perfect for the upcoming Halloween season. Who doesn't love a sweet monster face like this!?! I love it. You can find this one here. Rawwrrr...!
Bags like this one here are a life saver when you are travelling with or without children. I can pack masses in here and carrying it on my back keeps my hands free for shopping or talking on my phone or sitting in my lap while in the car or train. I love this cat face and ears, it stands out without being obnoxious, just very sweet :) Plus, it's made of soft material, so you could lay your head down on it if your the passenger or sitting somewhere. You can find this one here. Meoww!
I thought this one was cool, I love the cut-out design, it has a long shoulder strap as well as short handles. There's a compartment inside so none of your belongings will get lost. I'm ever intrigued by this design. Comes in three different colours as well. Check it out here.
Who wants a dougnut?? I do...lots of them & this one won't go straight to my back side or hips, haha!! I could have clutches in the shape of all kinds of foods, it would be amazing. I most definitely have my eye on this one. You can see it here.
It was the colour that struck me first, so deep and rich like berries. Perfect alternative to classic red tones. This berry fuchsia shade will compliment any outfit during the autumn season. I know most put away bright colours in the Autumn/Winter time, but this is spot on for keeping strong colours all year round if you don't want to have pastels or lighter colours in Autumn/Winter. Find this beauty here. Plenty of pockets and room for all your needs. Adore the colour and shape so much!
Yes, there had to be a heart-shaped item somewhere in here! This one combines other favourites, like flowers and painting-like fabric designs. Utterly perfect and dreamy for day and night. Has a long chain for easy carry as well. You can see this one here. So dainty & Sweet!
And yes here we are, something to wash down that delicious donut with...a Strawberry Milkshake Clutch - Perfect, because you know the milkshakes bring all the boys to the yard or so the song goes, ha! I like that it's not some small little thing either, a good size to get a good effect of it's shape. Go casual with it wearing jeans and a tshirt or glam it up with a gorgeous dress or skirt ensemble for the evening (or if you're me, you're already wearing a dress or skirt, haha) See it here.
I'm mad about fluffy bags, well anything fluffy to be honest and these bags are really cute. I also appreciate the long chain, so I can wear it over my shoulder and have my hands free with the shopping or keeping my youngest from running off. Soft and so cute, this bag also comes in 4 different colours. So flufffyy! You can find it here.
I tend to use Tote bags like this for my shopping, quick and easy way of getting all my food and other shopping items home without other bags breaking on me (plus it's more reusable for keeping the planet clean). Relatively inexpensive....I loved this one for what it says...that is me :)
Bright Fuschia is such a gorgeous colour, it goes with a parade of different things too. Like the berry toned bag above, this would also be great in adding colour to a neutral outfit in the Autumn/Winter time instead of being completely surrounded by dark, neutral colours. Or it would just add more colour if you're like me and tend to wear any colours at any time of the year! You can find this one here.
